Thread: Desktop Effects and double click on titlebar

    Default Desktop Effects and double click on titlebar


    With Dektops Effects enabled the double click on a titlebar of an
    application doesn't maximize the window. How can I change this behavior?


    Thx,
    altes-kind

    If you are using Emerald, go to Emerald Theme Manager and in the second
    tab that says Emerald Settings select "Maximize" instead of "Shade" from
    the drop-down menu.

    I'm using Compiz (openSUSE 11.1 with Gnome). How can I change the
    behavior with Compiz?

    Well, Compiz is a window manager and Emerald is a window decorator.

    If you're not using Emerald then you must be having Metacity as window
    decorator. Its the default one in Gnome.

    Just go to Control Center --> Windows and set "Maximize" there.

    The "Titlebar Action" in Window Preferences is already set to
    "Maximise". Actually the double click is working when Desktop Effects
    are disabled - but after enabling the double click doesn't work anymore.

    I'm using a "normal" openSUSE 11.1 with Gnome - what is the standard
    window manager and window decorator in openSUSE 11.1?

    The default window decorator in 11.1 is Metacity but a lot of people use
    Emerald because its eye candy.

    I dont know what might be the problem.

    To have Emerald just install "compiz-emerald" and
    "compiz-emerald-themes" packages in YaST.

    Then press Alt+F2 and type "emerald --replace". You should notice new
    titlebar.

    To change themes and settings go to Control Center --> Emerald Theme
    Manager.

    Hi there,

    I have the same problem as described above. It worked fine in OpenSuse
    11.0 with Compiz. But in 11.1 it only works when Compiz is disabled...

    No solution??

    I reported this in Bugzilla (462513), but it has a very low priority
